This is an EXELLENT 1911! I am VERY happy with it! It is a tight, well-fitted 1911. Absolutely no wobble, wiggle or slop in the slide-to-frame fit, the slide runs like it is on ball bearings. I cannot detect any machine marks whatsoever inside the frame, frame rails or slide rails. Feed ramp is very highly polished and properly positioned, barrel is nicely throated. Barrel bushing to slide and barrel fit is impeccable. The flats of the frame are very nicely polished, the rounded parts of the slide and frame are matt, all with a very nice deep blue. The slide was a little hard to rack and the trigger was about 4.5 lbs with just a wee little bit of creep but with a crisp break. I spent a whole $12.00 or so and got a Wilson Combat 16# recoil spring, a Cylinder & Slide reduced power sear spring and a Wolff 21# hammer spring. Dropped those parts in an VOILA ... slide is easier to rack, hammer just a bit easier to cock, and the trigger pull went down to below 3 lbs with zero creep. The Novak style sights are excellent. In my opinion this gun is equal or better than other brands at twice the price or more. I AM VERY HAPPY with this 1911!

The Metro Arms American Classic II, first about this Pistol. The fit and finish is very good and "bluing" is very nice, much better then I was excepting for a 1911 in the lower price range. I cleaned it up and lube-it up the way I like as I own 3 other 1911's. One I paid about 5 times the price many years back and the others cost 2 times more then this Pistol. So as for price you really can't bet it, with the features that come with it. Shooting it, I have put reloads 230gr.RN lead, factory 230gr. FMJ and reload 230gr. H.P.'s about 200 rounds total and had one FTF, but it was a friend that was shooting it when it happened. Has 3 dot sights, and on my Pistol they were right on ! On my 2nd. shot I hit a gallon milk jug at 50 yards. The trigger is not a strong point on my Pistol, but it's not really to bad a little creep and breaks at 4.2 lbs.. This will work for my needs as I bought as a field gun as I love the .45 ACP., and the 1911. So ill give this Pistol 5 stars and if Buds had 6 stars I would give that. It is worth the money in my mind, you get a very nice 1911 with most all the thing you would want on it from the factory. Great value, and fair price from Bud's !

Excellent pistol at an excellent price. If you're looking for a great a 1911 I would recommend MetroArms at any caliber. Shoots straight with great balance.

Great bargain 1911. After break in period of around 250 rounds it runs perfectly. Buds had fast shipping, but did not update my tracking info until after my FFL had called to say the gun had arrived. I guess not totally a bad thing....

Received this gun from Bud's a week ago (2-6-15). The fired case that came packaged with the gun indicates that it was manufactured in June of 2013 which I don't have a problem with. The gun was in a plastic bag inside of it's case and was very heavily oiled, and after a thorough cleaning I must say that I'm impressed with the fit and finish of this gun. Today (2-13-15) I finally had a chance to take it to the range for a short break in session, I fired 60 rounds of Federal Champion 230gr FMJ through the gun without a problem. The trigger is very crisp and not too heavy, accuracy was very good for me (I'm definitely not an expert ) ejection was brisk and didn't leave any brass marks on the slide and no problems with the supplied ACT magazine. The only thing I will change out at this point will be the grip panels but that is just a personal preference.
